Track Infos from Wikipedia :
Built in 1963, Zolder hosted the Formula One Belgian Grand Prix on 10 separate occasions in the 1970s and 1980s, as well as the 1980 Belgian motorcycle Grand Prix. F1 moved to Zolder in 1973 and with the exception of a race at Nivelles-Baulers in 1974, Zolder was the location of the Belgian Grand Prix until 1982. That year, Canadian driver Gilles Villeneuve was killed during qualifying at the 1982 Belgian Grand Prix. Villeneuve’s Ferrari 126C2 collided at speed with the March of Jochen Mass. The Ferrari was torn up in the accident and when rolling, Villeneuve was thrown from the car.
After Villeneuve’s death, the Belgian Grand Prix was held at Spa-Francorchamps in 1983, before returning to Zolder one final time in 1984. Fittingly, Ferrari driver Michele Alboreto won the race carrying Villeneuve’s #27 on his car. Since 1985, the Belgian Grand Prix has permanently moved to Spa.
Zolder has also been used for cycling events including the UCI Road World Championships twice in 1969 and 2002 and the UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships in 1970, 2002 and 2016. The latter saw the first confirmed use of mechanical doping when Femke Van den Driessche was found to have a secret motor inside her bike.
The SIM Version :
GPCZolder79, based on an early codemasters track, some sections are scratch made or remoddeled to produce the earlier ’79 layout.
These GPC tracks for GTR2 were originally made for the GPC 79 Mod by the team and myself, now updated and enhanced them for GTR2, added all rain reflections and animated marshalls (adapted track fences to accomodate) using the latest GTR2 type of start and pitlights.
AIWfiles are adapted for GTR2 and all have wetpaths added. all banners were made to represent the tracks of 1979.
Installation Instructions :

track-folder into your GTR2\GameData\Locations\…directory – done.
